The Ball. Held at the Angel hotel ball-room, proved an unqualified success. _ The floor was perfection, and everything connected with the dancing was thoroughly enjoyable. Over 6 tickets were sold, and there were from 25 to 30 couples present. The following, amongst others, were the dancers- — Messrs. A. E. Radcliffe, Herbert E. Chappel, E W Jenson C. F. Mitchell, E. P. Beer, Thorpe, Lukey,’ Marshall, Standbye, Adams, E. P. Kendall, Mockridge, Richards E. J. Rogers, R. H. Cade, J. Hill, F. Reed, Eva, M. Marrack, Sydney Hart, J. James, T. B. James, Alfred Lanyon, F. W. Jeffery, Trezise.and C. Grylls Hill. The Misses Voss Adams, Pollard, Bessie Williams, Williams, Reese, R. James, Richards Walton, Oppenheim, Bennetts, Treloar, and A. Eva. Music was supplied by Wick’s string band. Refreshments, on liberal scale, were supplied Mr and Mrs W. Black well. Altogether everything went off without any drawback, and all seemed sorry when the programme, with several extras, was exhausted. Mr A. E. Ratcliffe was M.C., and Mr J. James, hon sec. The pretty cards for the ball showed-Flora dance, two polkas, four waltzes, two lancers, schottische, and pas-de – quaitre. Two waltzes followed as supper dances; and, them a polka, quadrille, four waltzes, two lancers, schottische, and Circassian circle. Bat extras were inevitable, as these are often the most popular. The smallness of the dance was partially attributable to the previous engagement of the Godolphin hail for the bazaar. But for the energy of Mr John James and a few loyal supporters the 4 Angel’ ball would not have been a feature of this year’s celebration.Note M Marrack was Beatrice Leaf Hart’s Husbands Brother

WEDDING AT THE LIZARD
The prettiest and most popular wedding’ which has taken place for many years was solemnized on Monday at the Lizard between Mr Edwin Marrack, of London, Son of the late Mr R. Marrack, of Liverpool, and Beatrice, daughter of Mr Thomas Hart, of Polbrean, The Lizard.
The Lizard was en fete as regards decorations for the occasion, a goodly display of bunting being shown at Lloyd’s signal-station and at other points en route to Landewednack church. The greatest congratulatory enthusiasm was prominent and the display of floral tokens sent by residents and friends was a grand one, especially a beautiful and novel bouquet sent by Miss Nicolette, a visitor, and handsome basket of flowers, artistically arranged, from Mrs Rowe, which formed the centre piece for the breakfast table. The presents were numerous and valuable, consisting principally of substantial cheques, jewellery, plate, bric-a-brac, Wedgewood, and serpentine.
The groomsman was Mr Melville Marrack, brother of the bridegroom, and the bridesmaids, who were prettily attired in fashionable varied costumes, were Miss Hart, Miss Marrack, Miss Maud Edwards, and Miss Beatrice Hartley. The rector, the Rev C. S. Vyvyan, officiated.
A sumptuous breakfast was laid out at Polbrean, the residence of the bride’s parents, at which a family party of over twenty assembled, also the Rector. Dr. Appleton and Mr C. M. Wood.
Letters and telegrams congratulation were received during the breakfast from absent members of the family and friends.
The happy couple left during the afternoon on their wedding tour, and the guests drove out to Pollurian-house, Mullion, returning to Polbrean in the evening, where the festivities were continued.”
